Meet the scientists exploring the frontiers of physics in Nelson, B.C.
Organic food co-ops, draft dodgers, yoga studios, artists, microbreweries and the mountains — these were the things that Nelson, B.C. used to be known for.
But Nelson is now beginning to make a real mark in high science. Thanks, in part, to a homegrown company of physicist and engineers.
CBC reporter Bob Keating is not a physicist. But he thought you might like to meet some old Nelson pals of his — and hear about what they're working on.
